    With Lincoln Riley heading for USC, the list of Oklahoma coaching candidates to replace him is reportedly led by a current NFL head coach: Kliff Kingsbury. Lincoln Riley delivered a shock to the Oklahoma football program on Sunday with the news that he’ll be leaving Norman and taking the vacant USC Trojans job. That, of course, leaves the Sooners with a vacancy at the position. Joining other high-profile programs such as LSU in searching for a head coach, Oklahoma should have their pick of almost anyone they want to hire. And apparently they’re swinging for the fences, at least if some reports are to be believed. According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Oklahoma has already put together a shortlist of candidates for replacing Lincoln Riley as head coach. At the top of that list is Arizona Cardinals head coach (and former Big 12 rival) Kliff Kingsbury. Oklahoma has targeted Cardinals’ HC Kliff Kingsbury as one of the potential replacements for Lincoln Riley, league sources tell ESPN. Kingsbury has one year remaining on his contract after this season. — Adam Schefter...
    TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) — Kliff Kingsbury has proven his coaching chops on many occasions over the past decade, developing elite quarterbacks, piling up points on the scoreboard, producing an entertaining brand of offensive football that fans enjoy and opposing coaches respect. There’s only one real problem on his resume. Unfortunately for him, it’s a big one. He hasn’t won much. That’s finally starting to change for the 42-year-old Kingsbury, who has helped push the Arizona Cardinals to the NFL’s best record this season. The Cardinals (9-2) are in the middle of their long-awaited bye week before they return to prepare for a road game against the Chicago Bears on Dec. 5. Kingsbury has become one of the leading candidates for NFL Coach of the Year this season, winning football games despite key injuries and COVID-19 absences that have kept some of the team’s best players and coaches — including himself — off the field at various times. The Texan has kept his usual dry wit through the good times and bad, saying Arizona’s hot start hasn’t changed the way he...

Join the Heavy on Cardinals newsletter here! Join Heavy on Cardinals! Both teams were embarrassed in Week 10: The shorthanded Cardinals looked lifeless in a lopsided 34-10 loss to the Carolina Panthers; and the Seahawks were shut out 17-0 by the Green Bay Packers in Russell Wilson’s return to the lineup. It’s unclear whether Arizona (8-2) will have offensive stars Kyler Murray and DeAndre Hopkins back in uniform in Seattle when the teams meet Sunday, November 21. Neither played in the loss to the Panthers nor the Week 9 win over the San Francisco 49ers due to injury.

    TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) — Kliff Kingsbury learned some hard lessons last year while coaching his Arizona Cardinals through a late-season collapse from a 6-3 record to 8-8 and just missing a spot in the playoffs. Arguably the most important: In the NFL’s regular-season grind, less is sometimes more when it comes to the practice field. This is one of those times for the NFC West-leading — but very banged up — Cardinals. “I don’t want to give away our secret right now, but we’ve definitely made some adjustments at this juncture in our season to Wednesday more than anything,” said Kingsbury, who is in his third season. Arizona (8-1) is thriving with the best record in the NFL, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t problems. In particular, the injuries are mounting: Quarterback Kyler Murray (ankle) and star receiver DeAndre Hopkins (hamstring) missed last week’s win; three-time NFL Defensive Player of the Year J.J. Watt (shoulder) is likely out for the season; running back Chase Edmonds (ankle) could miss multiple games; and the offensive line has been in constant...

    SANTA CLARA (AP) — There will be a decidedly different look to the game when the San Francisco 49ers and Arizona Cardinals meet for the second time in less than a month. Jimmy Garoppolo will be back at quarterback for the Niners on Sunday after missing the game in Arizona four weeks ago for the 49ers (3-4) with a calf injury. Kyler Murray’s status for Arizona (7-1) could be in doubt up until game time because of an ankle injury.

We’re in a good spot.” Garoppolo gives the Niners a different style than Lance, who ran the ball 16 times during the 17-10 loss last month.

    How this suburban school board became the hottest issue in the Virginia governors race More than 2,000 Inner Mongolia tourists quarantined over COVID-19 fears Arizona Cardinals star wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins was listed as questionable with a hamstring injury heading into the team's Week 8 "Thursday Night Football" game against the Green Bay Packers. When Hopkins reaggravated the injury early in the contest, Cardinals head coach Kliff Kingsbury had all but decided that the 29-year-old was done for the night. © Michael Chow/The Republic / USA TODAY NETWORK Arizona Cardinals wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins Hopkins had other ideas. The five-time Pro Bowl wideout exited the contest with 8:18 left in the first quarter and didn't return until the 8:15 mark of the third, but according to Kingsbury, Hopkins wasn't supposed to get back on the field at all. ESPN's Josh Weinfuss reported on the situation following Arizona's first loss of the season, a 24-21 defeat."We wanted him to stay off the field but he'd just run on," Kingsbury said. "He wants to play, super competitive and made some plays...
    Thursday’s game between the Green Bay Packers and Arizona Cardinals ended in shocking fashion after Arizona wideout A.J. Green failed to turn around to catch what could have been the game-winning touchdown with seconds left. Instead, the Cardinals took their first loss of the season. The conclusion of the final Cardinals drive confused everyone from Arizona head coach Kliff Kingsbury to NFL Network analyst and Hall of Fame wide receiver Michael Irvin. Trailing 24-21 with 15 seconds remaining in the fourth quarter, Arizona was at Green Bay’s nine yard line. At best, the Cardinals would score the game-winning touchdown. At worst, they’d kick a chip shot field goal to send the game to overtime. About that. Arizona’s Kyler Murray dropped back to pass and immediately looked toward Green in the end zone. He was being covered by cornerback Rasul Douglas, who was actually on Arizona’s practice squad until Green Bay signed him earlier this month. Green made contact with Douglas as Murray threw the ball exactly where he wanted. Just one problem: for some reason, Green didn’t turn around. Instead,...

It was hardly business as usual for Kingsbury, however. He said after the game that he felt a “little disconnected” by showing up for the game after missing the entire week of preparation while waiting for clearance to return to the team. “I didn’t feel as into the game as I usually am just showing up on game day. . . .

    Arizona coach Kliff Kingsbury, quarterbacks coach Cam Turner and defensive tackle Zach Allen will miss the Cardinals' game Sunday at Cleveland after testing positive for COVID-19. The news adds to the virus woes for the NFL’s only unbeaten team, which also put star linebacker Chandler Jones on the reserve/COVID-19 list Tuesday.

    The Arizona Cardinals will have to try to continue their unbeaten start to the 2021 season without head coach Kliff Kingsbury after a COVID-19 outbreak.

    GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) — The Arizona Cardinals are feeling good about themselves after a stellar Week 1 performance, and rightfully so. Quarterback Kyler Murray was awesome in the 38-13 win over Tennessee Titans. Receiver DeAndre Hopkins was, too. Linebacker Chandler Jones outshined both of them with a jaw-dropping, five-sack performance that even LeBron James couldn’t stop talking about. Now the Cardinals are out to prove it’s not a fluke. They’ve certainly got the attention of the Minnesota Vikings, who travel to face the Cardinals on Sunday. “We’ve got a task at hand,” Vikings cornerback Bashaud Breeland said. “They’re using (Murray) well outside the pocket, inside the pocket. He’s got good targets, good receivers, good backs, so it’s going to be a task for us, but how else would we want it?

    Getty Cardinals coach Kliff Kingsbury looks at his play card during Arizona's 19-16 preseason victory over the Dallas Cowboys at State Farm Stadium on August 13, 2021, in Glendale, Arizona. If Kliff Kingsbury is on the NFL coaching hot seat this season, both the Arizona Cardinals coach and general manager Steve Keim have impressive poker faces. Neither took the bait when asked about the pressure on Kingsbury to make the playoffs in his third season as coach of the Cardinals. “I think going through being the head coach at your alma mater and getting fired is kind of walking through fire in this profession,” Kingsbury told reporters Wednesday, September 8. “So after going through that, not too much really fazes you.” Two days later, when asked by Arizona Sports 98.7 FM host John Gambadoro what improvements Kingsbury needs to make in 2021 to return as coach next season, Keim sidestepped the question. “I don’t look at it that way,” he said. “I look at the positives.” Keim cited the Cardinals’ ascension from a three-win team in 2018, to...

On Wednesday, Kingsbury said that there’s pressure to win in the NFL every year and agreed that the Cardinals were “put together to win now” before adding that he’s not thrown by having that weight on his shoulders. “I think going through being the head coach at your alma mater and getting fired, it’s kind of walking through fire in this profession,” Kingsbury said, via...
    See all the stars at the Venice Film Festival 2021 This Is the City Where Home Prices Are Being Slashed Kliff Kingsbury arrived as an NFL head coach based on promise not production. He’d been fired at Texas Tech after going 35-40 despite having both Baker Mayfield and Patrick Mahomes as his quarterbacks. The Arizona Cardinals hired him anyway, a 40-year-old with limited experience but ties to the so-called Air Raid offense that, presumably, might soon overtake the NFL. The way Mahomes was playing in Kansas City looked like the future, and Kingsbury was tangentially attached. The Cardinals then used the first overall pick on Kyler Murray, a mobile 5-foot-10 quarterback in that mode. The whole thing was a gamble. Even Kingsbury, always likable, acknowledged that. He promised aggression. Here in Year 3, he better deliver it. You can’t dub the Kingsbury-Murray Experiment in Arizona as a failure. They took over a three-win team, promptly went 5-10-1 and then 8-8. That said, there were late-season slides, often due to self-inflicted in-game wounds, that doomed what was possible. Murray injuring...

There’s a lot riding on this season for coach Kliff Kingsbury as he enters the third year of his four-year contract with the Arizona Cardinals. Kingsbury’s teams have finished with a better record than the previous season in his first two years with the Cardinals, posting a 5-10-1 record in his first season and going 8-8 in 2020. He also turned what had been the league’s worst offense in 2018 (241.6 yards per game), into a more respectable unit in 2019 (341.7 yards per game, 21st overall), and then one of the top offensive teams in 2020 (384.6 yards per game, sixth overall). Speaking to reporters Monday, September 6, in Glendale, Arizona, Kingsbury said he expects the Cardinals’ offense to take another step forward in 2021. “Year three of the offense in places I’ve been has really been a good year,” he said. “Guys are comfortable with it, understand what we’re trying to...
    Getty Arizona Cardinals coach Kliff Kingsbury watches from the sidelines during the second half of the NFL preseason game against the Kansas City Chiefs at State Farm Stadium on August 20, 2021, in Glendale, Arizona. Former NFL coach Rex Ryan has some advice for Kliff Kingsbury as he enters his third season with the Arizona Cardinals: Retire the “air raid” offense. Ryan, the former Jets and Bills coach who now works as an NFL analyst for ESPN, said the up-tempo, spread passing attack may rack up yardage, but it doesn’t translate into wins. “Let’s face it, this air-raid system … that he implemented from college, you had the greatest player on the planet in Patrick Mahomes, and you were .500 as a head coach at Texas Tech,” Ryan said Thursday, September 2, on ESPN’s “Keyshawn, JWill & Zubin.” “Oh, and by the way, you had Baker Mayfield too. So it’s like, are you kidding me? This doesn’t win games.” Statistics from Kingsbury’s six seasons as head coach of the Red Raiders back up Ryan’s claims. Kingsbury, who coached...

Strengths: The Cardinals have one of the league’s up-and-coming quarterbacks in Kyler Murray. The third-year starter has mostly delivered since being the No. 1 overall pick in the 2019 draft. Murray’s partnership with receiver DeAndre Hopkins was one of the NFL’s most productive last season. The offensive line has several quality veterans, including LT D.J. Humphries, LG Justin Pugh, Hudson and RT Kelvin Beachum. Arizona could have one of the league’s best pass rush duos with newly acquired J.J. Watt and veteran holdover Chandler Jones. Safety Budda Baker has evolved into one of the league’s best at that position. Weaknesses: The running game needs to evolve after losing Drake in free agency. Chase Edmonds and...

    Getty Images Andy Isabella and Greg Dortch are among the wideouts battling for the final Cardinals' roster spots. Looking at the Arizona Cardinals offense, the wide receiver room is one of their best strengths. It’s pretty formidable having five-time All-Pro DeAndre Hopkins, A.J. Green, Christian Kirk and an up-and-comer rookie in Rondale Moore. The top four spots are chalk. After that, it’s a little tricky but it can be solved in a multitude of ways. General manager Steve Keim could elect to keep seven wideouts, but the quality of their top four could stop that from happening. It’s most likely that two of KeeSean Johnson, Andy Isabella, Greg Dortch and Antoine Wesley are making the 53-man roster deadline on August 31. Wide receivers A.J.

Pundits said he was a perfect prototype for the do-everything defensive player that NFL teams craved. Then something unexpected happened during Simmons’ rookie season. He struggled. But coach Kliff Kingsbury isn’t down on the second-year linebacker, who was one of the college game’s biggest stars at Clemson. He said Simmons navigated the pandemic-altered season as well as could be expected, especially since the Cardinals had him trying to learn multiple positions while often staring at a Zoom screen. “It wasn’t fair, honestly,” Kingsbury said. “You saw his progression throughout the season. He had a good offseason, he’s had a good training camp. He’s learning every day.” Kingsbury is so confident in the linebacker’s ability that he and Cardinals GM Steve Keim made the surprising decision to anoint Simmons and rookie Zaven Collins as the starting linebackers in the middle of the defense, even before camp competition started. The bold move comes as Arizona is...
    Finally, as the country reopens, you’re likely seeing more of your friends. Out with the video chatting and in with the high-fiving, hugging and, well, spending. For every dinner, there’s a check to pay; for every wedding, a gift to buy; and for every concert, a ticket to score. You may notice that you and your reunited friends handle these kinds of expenses differently. Maybe one of you sees an $80 night out as chump change, while the other feels like a chump for desperately needing that cash for rent. Here’s how to reenter the world of socializing and spending while keeping friendships and finances intact. IF YOU’RE THE FRIEND WITH LESS MONEY Reflect on your finances and priorities, as well as how they may have changed during the pandemic. “This is an opportunity for everyone to be more mindful about where they want to spend their time, money and resources,” says Kathleen Burns Kingsbury, a Waitsfield, Vermont -based wealth psychology expert and host of the “Breaking Money Silence ” podcast. Consider what’s important to you, she...
    Tom Brady. Jason Behnken/AP Images Tom Brady's astounding work ethic is well known across the NFL. According to Kliff Kingsbury, Brady overcame a hangover in the Bahamas to get in a morning workout. Kingsbury backed up Brady for a season in New England before eventually moving into coaching. Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. Tom Brady's status as the greatest quarterback of all time did not come easy. En route to winning an astounding seven Super Bowls, Brady has built a reputation as one of the hardest-working players in the NFL, with many stories of his intense competitiveness cropping up over the years. Arizona Cardinals head coach Kliff Kingsbury, who backed up Brady for a season in New England during his brief stint as an NFL player, says that he's seen Brady's intensity up close, and there's nothing else like it in the NFL. Speaking as a guest on The Ringer podcast "Flying Coach," Kingsbury explained how a morning workout showed how different Brady was from your average NFL star. Kingsbury and Brady were both attending a...
    NYT Opinion Editor Kathleen Kingsbury is retiring the term 'op-ed' at the paper The New York Times has said that it will retire the term 'op-ed' and replace it with 'guest essay', a rebrand that follows a string of furious controversies in the newspaper's Opinion section. Opinion Editor Kathleen Kingsbury announced the change in a column on Monday, calling the term op-ed 'clubby newspaper jargon' and adding 'we are striving to be far more inclusive in explaining how and why we do our work.' Kingsbury explained that first op-ed page of guest contributions appeared in the Times in 1970, and was so named because 'it appeared opposite the editorial page and not (as many still believe) because it would offer views contrary to the paper's.' The bold rebranding comes after spectacular internal turmoil in the Times Opinion section, with editors James Bennet and Bari Weiss resigning over the demands of 'woke' colleagues, and columnist Bret Stephens expressing fury that editors spiked his column criticizing the ouster of health reporter Donald McNeil Jr. The bold rebranding comes after spectacular internal turmoil...
    Getty Chase Edmonds #29 of the Arizona Cardinals stiff arms Stephon Gilmore #24 of the New England Patriots. With last year’s starter Kenyan Drake taking his talents to Las Vegas to play alongside Pro Bowler Josh Jacobs, the Arizona Cardinals seemingly have a hole atop their running back depth chart — or do they? Soon-to-be third-year pro Chase Edmonds has shined in spot duty over his Arizona tenure. The dual-threat talent has averaged a hefty 4.85 yards per carry since 2019 and just this past season hauled in 53 receptions, good enough for third-most on the team. However, can Edmonds continue this type or trajectory with a larger workload? Head coach Kliff Kingsbury doesn’t see why not. Follow the Heavy on Cardinals Facebook page for all the latest stories, rumors and viral content!Cardinals View Chase Edmonds as a ‘Bell Cow’ Back“As far as Chase goes, you’ve seen when he’s had his opportunity, he’s played at a starting running back level,” Kingsbury said, via Pro Football Talk. “We all understand that he’s unfortunately been nicked up a couple times,...
    The Arizona Cardinals have almost exclusively added veterans in free agency thus far, acquiring former All-Pros by signing A.J. Green and J.J. Watt and trading for Rodney Hudson in a deal with the Raiders. All three players are over 30, though they each should have productive years left. On NFL Network, insider Ian Rapoport mentioned that “it feels like the Arizona Cardinals are going all in.” “Usually, these are the kind of guys who are the final pieces to a championship roster,” Rapoport said. “At least from the outside looking in, that’s what they seem to be doing.” But is this team anywhere near a championship contender? In two seasons under quarterback Kyler Murray and head coach Kliff Kingsbury, the Cardinals have gone 13-18-1, missing the playoffs both seasons. It’s fair to discount the first season, as it was Murray’s first as an NFL quarterback and Kingsbury’s as an NFL coach. But in the second season, despite Arizona getting off to a hot start, they collapsed down the stretch, losing five of their final seven games. Defenses adjusted to Kingsbury’s...
    Getty Kyler Murray #1 of the Arizona Cardinals talks with head coach Kliff Kingsbury against the New England Patriots. After a scorching hot 6-3 start to the 2020 season, the Arizona Cardinals struggled down the stretch, losing five of their next seven games. Despite a disappointing 8-8 finish, quarterback Kyler Murray flaunted the dual-threat skillset that originally made head coach Kliff Kingsbury so eager to bring him to Arizona. The former Heisman winner amassed 4,790 yards from scrimmage and 37 total touchdowns this past season. However, Kingsbury believes that type of production is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to Murray’s immense ceiling. “I want to make sure we continue his progression, make sure we are taking the next step,” Kingsbury said, per the team’s official website. “To be able to do what he’s done from Year 1 to Year 2 without an offseason, I’m excited to see where it heads next. I think we all know the talent is immense, and he has a chance to be as good as anybody in this league.” Follow...
    The beleaguered New York Times continues to be plagued by internal issues and chaos as Gray Lady editors refused to publish a column by conservative columnist Bret Stephens, who intended to criticize the paper’s leadership. Stephens planned on bashing the paper’s handling of recently-ousted Times reporter Donald McNeil Jr., who announced his resignation on Friday after he was accused of using the "n-word" while leading a student trip in Peru. McNeil explained the context of the slur in his resignation letter, sparking a heated clash among Times staffers when he explained he was simply having a conversation about someone else’s use of the word. Stephens’ attempt to publish his thoughts on the internal spat was rejected by Times opinion editor Kathleen Kingsbury. "I have an especially high bar of running any column that could reflect badly on a colleague and I didn’t feel that this piece rose to that level," Kingsbury told Fox News.

    With the Arizona Cardinals eliminated from playoff contention, is Kliff Kingsbury really the right man for the job? Earlier this season, the Arizona Cardinals were in first place in the NFC West with a 5-2 record, with one win coming in overtime against the Seattle Seahawks just before their Week 8 bye. They looked like instant playoff contenders at the time and many lauded the work of head coach Kliff Kingsbury. Fast-forward to Week 17, the Cardinals lost 18-7 to the Los Angeles Rams and officially handed the Chicago Bears the final Wild Card spot in the NFC. Arizona’s remarkable skid has many wondering: Is Kingsbury truly the right man for the job?Questions followed Kingsbury immediately in ArizonaFollowing a disastrous 2018 campaign, the Cardinals parted ways with then-head coach Steve Wilks after one season on the job. Granted, Wilks felt like a last-resort hire for Arizona, considering the “better” candidates of Matt Nagy and Pat Shurmur were already hired (yikes). With the first-overall pick in their grasp, the Cardinals needed to find a coach who could replicate the success that...
    TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) — Arizona Cardinals coach Kliff Kingsbury said linebacker Dennis Gardeck is out for the rest of the regular season and will be placed on injured reserve with a knee injury. Gardeck had a surprise emergence as one of Arizona’s biggest playmakers on defense and is second on the team with seven sacks. The undrafted 26-year-old was a special teams ace during his first two seasons and hadn’t played a defensive snap in the NFL until 2019 All-Pro Chandler Jones was lost for the year because of a biceps injury in October. “He’s such a tough guy we were exploring every option to try and get him out there,” Kingsbury said. “But it doesn’t appear like it’s going to work out, so he’ll be put on IR for the remainder of the season.” Gardeck was hurt in Sunday’s 33-26 win against the Eagles. He had two sacks in the game before the injury. The Cardinals (8-6) host the San Francisco 49ers (5-9) on Saturday and are trying to clinch their first playoff berth since 2015. ___ More AP...
    GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) — Arizona’s once-rolling offense has hit the skids the past couple of weeks. As is often the case in the NFL, opposing defenses have adjusted to the Cardinals and are making life difficult for second-year quarterback Kyler Murray. Your move, Kliff Kingsbury. “We’ve got to figure out some things this week,” Arizona’s coach said on Monday. The Cardinals (6-6) have lost three straight games and four of their last five after Sunday’s 38-28 setback against the Los Angeles Rams. They’re now two games behind the Rams and Seattle Seahawks in the NFC West and likely have to win their final four to make the playoffs for the first time since 2015. They travel Sunday to face the New York Giants, who are coming off a surprise 17-12 win over the Seahawks. Kingsbury said the lack of offensive execution started to show in the team’s 28-21 loss to the Seahawks on Nov. 19. The Cardinals were averaging more than 400 yards per game through their first nine games, but had just 314, 298 and 232 in each of...
    FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) — When Kliff Kingsbury began coaching at Texas Tech in 2012, he used to carry a secret weapon on recruiting trips: his Patriots 2003 Super Bowl ring. “That was something I tried to seal the deal with. It didn’t work as much as I would have liked but I definitely tried with the ring,” Kingsbury said this week. Kingsbury, a quarterback, was drafted by New England in the sixth round in 2003, joining a roster that included a 26-year-old Tom Brady. Even then, Kingsbury knew there was something different about him. “He was still the man, there’s no doubt. Everybody knew who he was, and he was a superstar,” Kingsbury recalled. An arm injury and yearlong stay on injured reserve prevented Kingsbury from ever playing a regular-season snap at quarterback for the Patriots, and he was cut prior to the 2004 campaign. But Kingsbury says he owes his coaching career to the year he spent studying under coach Bill Belichick and his staff. That season allowed him the opportunity to work in...
    BOSTON (CBS) — The Arizona Cardinals will be visiting Foxboro this weekend. They may not have their star young quarterback. Kyler Murray was a limited participant in Tuesday’s practice, and on Wednesday morning, Cardinals head coach Kliff Kingsbury said he’s not yet sure if Murray will be ready to go by Sunday. “We’re going to see today how he progresses. I feel positive, but we want to make sure he’s able to play his game and play at a high level,” Kinsbury said on a conference call with New England media, per ESPN’s Mike Reiss. Kliff Kingsbury, asked his level of concern that Kyler Murray (right shoulder) will be cleared for action Sunday, says: "Were going to see today how he progresses. I feel positive, but we want to make sure hes able to play his game and play at a high level." — Mike Reiss (@MikeReiss) November 25, 2020 NFL Network’s Mike Giardi added that Kinsbury said Wednesday’s practice represents an important step in Murray’s potential progression. "Were going to see how he progresses. I feel positive…well see how today...
    Arizona’s playoff hopes took a hit during Thursday night’s 28-21 loss to the Seattle Seahawks. Maybe more important for the Cardinals, so did quarterback Kyler Murray’s throwing shoulder. Arizona’s stay at the top of the NFC West lasted just five days after Thursday’s loss. The Cardinals (6-4) are now a game behind the Seahawks for the division lead and trail the Los Angeles Rams by a half-game. They’re still right in the middle of the playoff race in the NFC if they can play well during the final six weeks. Murray’s health is obviously of paramount importance if the Cardinals want to be a factor. He fell on the shoulder early in the game against Seattle and TV shots showed the second-year quarterback grimacing on the sideline. “I’m not sure about the extent of it,” Arizona coach Kliff Kingsbury said Friday. “But like we talked about last night he landed on it on that play, but that’s about all I know.” Murray still finished with a solid game, completing 29 of 42 passes for 269 yards and two touchdowns....
    GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) — Less than 24 hours after a clearly frustrated Kliff Kingsbury answered questions about a 34-31 loss to the Dolphins, Arizona’s coach was in a much better mood. The Cardinals appear ahead of schedule on their franchise rebuild and have a 5-3 record midway through the season. Second-year quarterback Kyler Murray has turned into a legit star. The offense is among the best in the NFL, and the defense, while a bit banged-up, is improved from last season. For Kingsbury, it’s not time to be greedy. It’s time to get to work. “Obviously, we’d love to be undefeated and so would every other team,” Kingsbury said. “That’s not where we’re at, but I do think we’re in a position to kind of control our own destiny. At the midway point, that’s about all you can ask for.” The Cardinals have turned into one of the most consistent offensive teams in the NFL, scoring 21 points or more in all eight games and topping 30 points in five. Murray has thrown for 2,130 yards and 16 touchdowns...
    TEMPE, Ariz. (CBSDFW.COM/AP) — Arizona Cardinals coach Kliff Kingsbury is headed back to his home state of Texas on Monday for a pretty big football game. He’s unsure if his southern drawl will make a return appearance as well. “It’s usually after a few Coors Lights so I don’t know if it’ll really break out this trip,” Kingsbury said with a wry grin. The Cardinals travel to face the Dallas Cowboys for “Monday Night Football” in a game that isn’t short on storylines. Arizona (3-2) is one of the NFL’s up-and-coming teams and trying to stay competitive in the tough NFC West. The Cowboys (2-3) are trying to regain their footing with backup quarterback Andy Dalton, who’s making his first start in place of the injured star Dak Prescott. It’ll also be a showcase for some of the premier talent that the Texas football scene has produced over the years. Kingsbury and second-year Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray will both be making their first NFL appearances in their home state. The 41-year-old Kingsbury was a standout prep player in the late...
